Morgan Overton is a visual artist and proud Pittsburgh native. Her work aims to amplify the history, humanity, and future of Black culture. She works in all mediums to vibrantly reclaim narratives that history has attempted to command. Morgan’s work is grounded in the Nina Simone quote - “It's an artist's duty to reflect the times”. She believes that art is a powerful platform to redirect the social paradigm, and honor the resilience of her People.
